5.0 out of 5 stars A Divided Inheritance, 30 Oct. 2013
This review is from: A Divided Inheritance (Paperback)
This is one of those novels which, as well as having a pacey storyline and complex and intriguing characters, is packed with fascinating historical fact. In less skilful hands, this can sometimes make for difficult reading, but Deborah Swift's stories always wear their research lightly. This book is no exception. I found out so much that I didn't know - about sword-fighting and Spain and the terrible excesses of the inquisition (her depiction of the expulsion of the Moriscos is really shocking at times), but for me, the overriding drive of the book is the antagonism between Elspet and Zachary and the unexpected inheritance which both unites and divides them. The gorgeous setting of heat-bound Seville is compelling; the plot moves as swiftly as Zachary's newly-forged sword, and with as much courage and verve.
